3700 block of E Washington Ave


Juan F. Serate-Trampal, 38-year-old male of Madison, Wisconsin
CHARGES: 1st Degree Reckless Endangering Safety, Substantial Battery, and Simple Battery


34-year-old male of Madison, Wisconsin


Madison Police responded to a significant disturbance, where a man was reported to be bleeding from an assault that occurred in a parking lot near the 3700 block of East Washington Avenue. A 34-year-old male and his wife had gone to Lagarto Nightclub, and encountered a Juan Serate. Serate was in the company of other individuals, and based on the acrimonious relationship, bar staff separated all parties, and Serate left the area.

The male victim, and several associates, began to walk to their vehicle, when several males exited a suv, and attacked him. After the victim fell to the ground, he attempted to get up from the pavement, but the suv proceeded to run over the leg of the victim and fled the scene. The victim was conveyed to a local hospital, and treated for non life threatening injuries. Officers and detectives widened the scope of the investigation, and took Juan Serate into custody on charges listed.

This case continues to be actively investigated, as there are a variety of questions that still loom about how such an incident could occur. This was not an isolated event, and all involved parties had some degree of knowledge of one another.
